The Fair Draws to a Close

It’s hard to believe that the Fair ended a couple weeks ago!  The month of August was a whirlwind getting ready for the Fair in addition to the Fair itself! The month of September is spent cleaning up and winding down, reflecting on the Fair and what we can do to improve.

It was a great Fair! Even though it was hotter than hot some days and rainy others, Fair-lovers from across the country still came out to enjoy their favorite things about the Iowa State Fair. A few of my favorite things:

The Draft Horse Show

The 4-H Building

The Animal Learning Center

I was honored to meet several of our Iowans of the Day, all very deserving recipients, all dedicated to improving their communities. I was inspired. 

Speed Herrig of Cookies Food Products along with winners Helen & Floyd Deets.

We also had a great crew working for us this year! To our staff and our volunteers, we couldn’t do it without you!

Blue Ribbon Staff

Stay tuned as we show you more glimpses of the 2010 Iowa State Fair as well as what we have planned this fall! We hope you had a great Fair, we look forward to hearing all of your favorite memories from the Fair!
